Thirteen Country Songs that Make Me Smile


1.... "A Boy Named Sue" by Johnny Cash: The title alone makes me crack up, but the song is hilarious.

2.... "Ten Rounds with Jose Cuervo" by Tracy Byrd: These lyrics crack me up:

"Then after Three rounds with Jose Cuervo I let her lead me out on the floor
And after Four rounds with Jose Cuervo I was showin' off moves never seen before"

3.... "She Just Started Liking Cheatin' Songs" by Alan Jackson: What makes me smile? The line "But I don't know if it's the cheatin' she likes or just the melody". LOL!

4...."Beer for My Horses" by Toby Keith and Willie Nelson: Something makes me smile at the lines

"When the gun smoke settles well sing a victory tune
Well all meet back at the local saloon
Well raise up our glasses against evil forces
Singing whiskey for my men, beer for my horses"

5.... "Family Tradition" by Hank Williams Jr:

"Why do you drink? Why do you roll smoke?
Why must you live out the songs that you wrote?
Stop and think it over - try to put yourself in this position
When I get stoned, I'm just carryin' on and old family tradition." (That's a hoot!)

6.... "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue" by Toby Keith: Well, they may not be politically correct lyrics, but they amuse me anyway:
"Cause we'll put a boot in your ass, It's the American way."

Is it? I had no idea. LOL!

7.... "Ticks" by Brad Paisley: "I'd Like To See You Out In The Moonlight
I'd Like To Kiss You Way Back In The Sticks
I'd Like To Walk You Through A Field Of Wildflowers
And I'd Like To Check You For Ticks." LOL

8.... "You Ain't Much Fun" by Toby Keith:
"I sobered up, and I got to thinkin'
Girl, you ain't much fun since I quit drinkin' (It's funny because it's true)

9.... "Before he Cheats" by Carrie Underwood: "Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats". Sheesh. I would hope so! LOL

10.... "Goodbye Earl" by the Dixie Chicks: Is it wrong to me amused at this song?

11... "That don't Impress Me Much" by Shania Twain: She's not impressed with Brad Pitt? Uh-huh. Right.

12.... "One Piece at a Time" by Johnny Cash: It tells a story of an auto worker who watches Cadillacs roll by day after day, all the while knowing that he will never be able to afford one. So, he decides to steal a Cadillac, avoiding getting caught by taking parts from the factory, as the title suggests, one piece at a time. Too funny.

13.... "Two of a Kind, Working on a Full House" by Garth Brooks: This song is so cute. It makes me smile for that reason alone.

***Dang, I should have been a country girl. :)

Jennifer McK said...

I love "Ticks". Brad Paisley is freakin' brilliant.

Lesley said...

I have a friend who had a run in with Jose Cuervo. We now tease her about it with that song. I wasn't even there for the event, but I've heard about it so often that it's like I was. hehe

DD said...

How fun is this! Some good lyrics in there - and so funny. Thanks for the laugh :)

Tempest Knight said...

OMG! These are hilarious! I don't listen to country music but I'll have to check these out. :)

Lia said...

As a country girl living in Nashville. Come on in girl, ya'll will fit right in. Brad Paisley's new one "Online" is just as funny as "Ticks," or "Celebrity."

Amelia June said...

I love that Garth song, and also Papa Loved Mama--always cracks me up even though it's kind of violent, LOL

Heather said...

"I wanna check you for ticks" ?? Are you serious? LOL I have heard (or heard of) almost all of these. Love the Shania Twain, absolutely hate the one by the Dixie Chicks.

Paige Tyler said...

I like Garth Brooks' Friends in Low Places. I'm not a big country listener but that one always makes me laugh and sing along - much to my husband's horror!

Great list, Jennifer.

Erin Gordon said...

I remember a boy named Sue.

Anyone remember Tedddy Bear? That was a good song, too.

Christine d'Abo said...

I don't normally listen to country, but these song lines are hilarious! Thanks for sharing them.

Toby Keith is great. (It's because he's from Oklahoma, you know, just like me.) I like his I Wanna Talk About Me.

Debbie Mumford said...

Man! I'm going to have to start listening to country ...
